I use this combined with Psync as a backup utility. I run it nightly to a partition on an external firewire drive.

I also used it this week when my work PBG4 needed to go into the shop. I grabbed one of our training iBooks, put it into target mode and used CCC to duplicate my PB onto the iBook. In a couple of hours I had migrated seemlessly to a new machine.

Definitely 10 out of 10.

I could not do my job as a Mac Tech without Carbon Copy Cloner and his companion app NetRestore. Get a build just right, clone it to a ASR (apple software restore) disk image, then netboot from a special NetRestore boot image hosted on a Xserve (or anywhere) and then wipe the drive and restore image made in CCC. Use Remote Desktop too, it's all laid out at Mike's site, 10 out of 10. I would like to meet the man. I have imaged hundreds of machines and I do it every 2 months at my work, everything wiped and reimaged, all in two days. It would not be possible without Mike's apps.
